The Town of Milton invites you to celebrate Earth Day on April 22. This annual and international initiative is aimed to diversify, educate, and activate the worldwide environmental movement. It’s the largest climate change action movement across the globe with more than one billion participants. 

Milton is committed to protecting the environment and keeping our community safe and clean for all to enjoy. A healthy planet is not an option — it's a necessity.

How you can make a difference

Join our two-week clean-up initiative:

When: April 15 – 30


Clean-up kits (garbage bags and gloves) will be available at the Milton Sports Centre during its hours of operation. When you have finished cleaning up, email a picture of where the garbage bags are located in the neighbourhood/park, number of bags collected, and number of participants to our operations team so we can collect bags in a timely manner.

Change starts with action! We know that individual actions make a lasting impact.

We're planting hundreds of trees

The Town applies a green lens to projects and initiatives using specific environmental, sustainable and energy conservation strategies. This year, we're planting hundreds of trees in streetscapes and parks. For reforestation efforts, an additional several hundred trees are being planted in partnership with Conservation Halton, Sustainable Milton, and Anne J. MacArthur Public School.
